My CD player in the truck was stolen last year, and ironically, this CD was in it. I just replaced it recently, and am listening to it while cleaning house with herbs.

Man, this thing rocks. It's one of many that I didn't discover until relatively late in life. There's a different kind of appreciation when I listen to a "classic" that I didn't grow up with, that doesn't trigger memories of younger days...I was smokin' and cleanin' to Some Girls when I was a teenager, not this. There was a thread here recently about old faves rediscovered, this is the opposite.

Hope Keef is doing alright.

Great album -- Sway, Can't You Hear Me Knockin', Moonlight Mile, Sister Morphine -- really at their best on this one, & on their followup, Exile.

You'll dig it Rebecca -- four sides of the Stones at their best -- not everyone would agree with that, but I'm sort of partial to the Mick Taylor era -- Casino Boogie, All Down the Line, Happy, Tumbling Dice, Sweet Virginia, their cover of Stop Breakin' Down -- 43 years of rocking out -- wow.
What you said about Keef.

The 4 album run, starting with Beggar's Banquet, to Let It Bleed, to Sticky Fingers, and ending up with Exile on Main Street where the Stone's at their peak. I would highly recommend getting all four.

Fully agreed Fred, and I would put Ya-Ya's in that category/time frame as well -- few better live ones that that.

I've got Goat Head Soup. Maybe I'll put it in the CD lineup for today--after Neil's This Note's For You and LAFE. To tell you the truth, I haven't listened to this much real rock and roll in about 20 years. Gov't Mule did something to me at Wanee, and there seems to be no turning back for a while. I was always a more Van Morrison/Dylan/Traffic kinda girl, after I became a mother. Maybe this is one of those silver linings to being a grandma...

pretty funny. I put 5 discs in the changer today after having the inlaws over last night.

Last night was some mellow stuff for the older folks ( Wes and Jimmy smith, Bobby Darin, Tom Petty Wildflowers, Taj Mahal live, and Gregg Laid Back )

Today for me I put on Sticky Fingers since I haven't heard it in a while and here is this thread. Cool. I love Sway, Moonlight Mile and Sister Morphine. Absolute classics and Dead Flowers reminds me a band that used to play at my college parties. They would always rave up to that one. I also got some Meters going, Taj Mahals more recent Phantom Blues, Peter Tosh and SRV Texas Flood. All CD's I haven't given spins to in a while.

Goats head Soup is another lost Stones Classic. Not up there with Exile or Sticky Fingers but good.

I really like the song , Winter .

Completely agree Fred, Stones at their pinnacle thanks in patr to addition of Mick Taylor whose fluid style offsets nicely to Keith's riffs.

Great album but "Some Girls" is my all time favorite Stones album. They covered just about everything on that one, country/blues/disco/punk you name it.

I like all the Stones stuff myself. Grew up listening to Paint It Black, Mothers Little Helper, etc. Sticky Fingers is their best in my opinion, but everybody's got one.
This got me looking at the Stones website. I really like how they did their archive. Check it out.

In refernce to the country song by the Stones, seems like around the same time Led Zeppelin did a country song, "Hot Dog." Seems like Waylon, Willie, and the boys had some influence on English rockers.

Don't underestimate the influence Gram Parsons
had on Keef .... w/o Gram, Keef may have never
known who Waylon, G Jones, etc. were...

You're right Dino. I forgot about Gram and he's from Winter Haven(where I live). Shame on me.

"Let it Bleed" is my favorite Stone's album

but the break in "can't you hear me knockin" on "Sticky Fingers"
is too much. Bobby Keys and Mick Taylor rip it up with their
solos and the groove is amazing. Some of the best jammin by
the Stones.

The Mick Taylor years were my favorite period of the Stones.

peace
John

Hittin the Note published a fantastic article on Gram Parsons last year -- really a terrific read. Great quots from Keith saying how much Keith respected Parsons as a musician & his on going influence etc.

While Heartbreaker & Dancin' with Mr. D were the "hits" from Goats Head Soup, "Comin' Down Again" is an awesome one from that album -- an introspective side of Keith not often seen -- something that could've been written when he was feeling Gram Parsons' death, which occured right around that time.
"100 Years Ago" is a great one too.

The way this thread has gone is a prime example of why I love this place. Get stoned, clean house, post about a great album, and come back to a discussion that goes from George Jones to Led Zeppelin. Plus, now ya got me humming Boulder to Birmingham in my head!

"Can't You Hear Me Knockin'" is the closest the Stones ever got to what the Brothers do. My all-time favorite Stones song and album. Recorded in good old Muscle Shoals, AL, no less. Got a tour of the MS Sound Studio and saw a piano that was played during the recording of that album. I agree that Mick Taylor totally rocked.

"Can't You Hear Me Knockin'" was great in concert a few tours back. It was definitely the highlight of each show for me

The Mick Taylor era was my fave Stones era, far and away, for so many reasons. Keith had his most razor-sharp riffs and rhythms, Charlie was really playing more interesting stuff then, they had very active keyobard players in Ian Stewart and Nicky Hopkins and then Billy Preston, and they had one of the best lead guitarists soaring over the top. Also, I always feel like Mick Jagger switched from singing his heart out to "acting" the songs out in about 1973, if you know what I mean.

There is a wealth of live Stones from this period that also smokes. To me, the great tragedy of this line-up is that they did not release another live disc with Taylor. "Get Your Ya-Yas" out is amazing, no doubt, but I would stack a handful of bootlegs from the next few tours up against it. The live King Biscuit stuff from the 1973 tour is UNBELIEVEABLY GOOD - Mick Taylor had the fattest tone in rock at that point, bar none.

And the 1972 concert film "Ladies and Gentlemen, The Rolling Stones" is still sitting in the cans. I hope the Stones can get over themselves and release that one to the public already.
